Huge Progress Made on Barn Dismantling! Volunteers Still Wanted and Welcome this Sunday, August 30, 8:30am - 12:30pm. Call Alison ASAP at 925-932-2328 for details. See you at the barn!
The Martinez barn dismantling has made huge progress! The roof is off, the sides are coming down, and wood is being sorted into piles. We still need volunteers to help sort and load the wood onto trucks for transport to RRHC. Come help this Sunday, August 23, 8:30am to 12:30pm. Free box lunches and water provided! Call Alison at 925-932-2328 ASAP for details!
In the honor of tonight's monument dedication, we thought it would be fun to post from beginning to end pictures of the process. We wish to thank E Clampus Vitus and more specifically Jason Vinca and Carter Wilson, who with their group of Clamper volunteers built the Rodgers Ranch Monument. Thanks again to them and please enjoy the pictures! Photos by Joseph Palmer
Rodgers Ranch Heritage Center (RRHC) invites you to be a part of Rodgers Ranch history! We urgently need volunteers, especially new ones, to help with the current barn project.
We are on a strict deadline to remove and transport wood from the Martinez Barn
(c. 1890s) to RRHC before it is demolished forever and we lose a great opportunity to recycle this excellent redwood for Rodgers Ranch new barn. Our fabulous and friendly board member, Christian Rousset, is supervising volunteers several times a week and welcomes all volunteers.
We Need Volunteers To:
This week we will be at the barn:
For safety and comfort, we recommend you wear close-toed shoes, long pants, hat, and gloves. If you have a cordless drill, straight screwdriver, or hammer, please bring them along!
For volunteers who work the entire day on Sundays, we will provide water and box lunches!
During the week, please bring a sack lunch and water.
Please contact Alison Clary at (925) 932-2328 ASAP.
We’ll sign you up and give you more details. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you!!
